Marshall 4010 JCM800 [1981-1989]
50W tube amp.
I understood that there was quite a guitarist who used back on stage.
It is certainly a 50W lamp but so powerful


The sound is great especially after having allowed to heat for a good half hour.
Whenever it plays I am surprised with the quality of sound. clear and saturates


I play all styles above. Rock, Hard rock, funk.
The sound is typical saturates the JCM800 preamp with rule 3/4 saturation is beautiful and critalline, bubbles, but not too much. No effect that I tried to date happens to reproduce this saturation.
The sound is clear and slamming wish for funk rhythm.


I have since 1988.
I na'i not try many amps, but because the one is perfect I have not seen the usefulness me to try another.

The + is ca Simplicie use and time adjustment / sound quality report.
There are only very few pots, preamp, volume, bass, mid, treble, presence, and two entrees
Low and High.

The - is that to go from one channel to another (light saturated) must unplug the jack and plug it into the desired entry.

Marshall 4010 JCM800 [1981-1989]
While the mine was not quite the mouth.
Entered a 2-channel (+ 1 1claire saturated)
an HP celestion 12M70
2 speaker output, an effects loop, an output with adjustable volume ..... everything you need or should be.
lamp preamp, amp lamp
His clear: volume, treble, bass
popping sound: gain, volume, treble, middle, low
Master volume and reverb.
Has a footswitch with 2 button, clear / saturated and reverb on / of


Very easy to use, very versatile.
Small constant breath, certainly due to the fact that it is all light.
but very heavy


sound fat enough, I recently a couple baffle the sound a bit sharper and more in the midrange and treble. homemade
I use it often with a Metal Zone for big sound distortion covient otherwise its perfect for a wide range of music.
suited for the stage
Before I played on a Samick san semicaisse 450 so far to say that the sound was very fat but bcp feedback due to the pension reasonable. excelente mix but to play blues and clean sound.
Today I have a left-handed Ibanez sa260 Fm, the quatro MT2 + Ibanez + amp + speaker gives me a very satisfactory result


I use it for nearly 15 years, I changed all y 'lamps 5 or 6 years.
I have been offered the pretext that he was out but it worked very well. If I had to buy an amp today I'll probably do the same choice, can not be double corp for transport because the entire combo is quite heavy, I leave blow in local repeat
To play at home I have a small vox ad 20

Marshall 4010 JCM800 [1981-1989]
50 Watt All Tube Combo
Preamp: 12AX7 3
Amp: 2 EL34
One hp: G12M70 for me.
2 inputs a LOW and a HIGH, I use only HIGH.
Settings: volume, preamp
-Master volume
Note the absence of effects loop. Too bad.
So it makes us 6 knobs, it's enough knowing that the goal of the game is to put at least 4 (this is its weakness: the sound is good and the settings effective only from the threshold).
On the back: 2 HP, power supply, impedance (ohms 4,8,16), and current setting by country.
The whole thing is really heavy: 25kilos I think it's strong!
So I put 8 because of the history of the volume and effects loop.
Good day at the same time this amp, it is older than me!


Simplicime configuration.
For audio, from four (again ^ ^) we get different knobs sonoritées with an amp but it really very typical and these settings do not change fundamentally sound. It's still very very marshall, jcm 800 is the normal: the holy grail.
I had no manual when I bought second-hand '. No need to be really limited to not understand.
It is this side that I like simple, in fact the amp is a base (excellent) and if we are to obtain a one seeks the good effects and everything what.
After 45min-1 hour the sound is really soft, thank you for the lamps, do not hesitate to heat they require only that!


HIS ha!
Name Groum a mustache!
What a potato! What grain! It drool at will!
I use a les paul, and there is much less versatile but it is on What's Bondiou! It's really rock (no need to quote the famous guitarist playing on it ...).
The dynamics are outstanding, many medium (this is true it's not a myth) and harmonics are truly great.
The level of gain is not huge, but who cares it all pete (ok it's not that the arguments).
Personally I put the preamp to 8, the master at 6, and the rest to the bottom most of the time.
The notes come off well in rhythm it's still sketchy, it is a jcm 800 what, you love it or hate it but let the "Marchemall" or "yeah mesa c too are many better and more buttons." NO, Mesa's different, like Fender and Vox others.
Each brand has its signature sound.
The JCM 800 sound good vintage, it does not at all the same grain as the more recent series like jcm 2000 and for the Vintage Modern I never tried.
We can go from clean to crunch to overdrive trend not only with the knob of the guitar, it's magic (this entry on HIGH, LOW in clean and clean c frankly I find effete)


I use it for six months, I like it more and more ...
I try fender twin, B52, Vox AC 100, and a jcm 800 100 watt lead was not the same grain (this model has 2 overdrive channels and the channel has more gain than mine).
The value for money is excellent: I bought 700 euros and heads mesa or orange to 3000 euros do not sound better (my opinion).
Now I hesitate between several overdrive pedal to add some grain and gain.
I will also add an effects loop.
I obviously do it again this election ...

Marshall 4010 JCM800 [1981-1989]
All lamps 50W, 50W and big watts
Lamps of Origin: 3 ECC83 preamp and 2 EL34 in power
Hp: Rola Celestion G12-65 for older G12M70 for Newest.

Single channel amp with two inputs: a LOW (Clean) and HIGH (crunch)
Two parallel hp output, impedance selector (4-8-16 Ohm)
Level settings: preamp volume and master volume, three band eq (treble, middle, bass) + presence
No effects, no effects loop (-> Other series have jcm 800)


Super simple setup and use.
You branch and you got the sound ... but the type of guitar greatly affects the sound (I have a Squier Start which sounds great but with a les paul or sg sound will be much better because the amp has restored 100% the sound of your scratch)
No need for manual ...


The clean (low) with a good crunch when it is cranked. It's not a Fender but not buy a Marshall for clean sound in general.

The crunch channel (high) bin is nothing to say ...
Marshall is the sound, basically it's huge ...
Clean background has been pushed Hendrix
The high was AC / DC ...
At the same time the JCM800 series is the same circuits as the plexi, but its level is more "hard", more saturation, but the sound is very similar.
Think ay take it easy especially with the treble presence.

Given that no effect is not a very versatile amp. He has his sound. Following is an excellent base sound but good for me not need its sound effects serious ...

For now I play with at home but that limit: 2 on master after the neighbors are not happy ...


I use it for a week. This is my first tube amp and I regret my old Jim Harley BX-30 ... anyway ... the sound of the lamps
For € 500 its a great amp, I love the grain, I would definitely do it again this election.

Marshall 4010 JCM800 [1981-1989]
- What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor ,...)?
All Tube Amp! 3 ECC83 preamp and 2 EL34 in power.

- What is the power dlivre?
Tration and officially 50W. But the power of all-tube amp is no longer admontrer because the big 50 Watt are stronger!

- What connection?
Jack 6mm (Standart in the gratteu)

- What are the rglages the effects? ...
Single-channel type. 2 input jacks (high and low). The settings are minimalist or rather "just right", preamp volume, master volume (general), Aquamarine, Meduim, bass, presence. After it has pedals to speak freely and you choose the set of effects that suits you better now .. The amp has no effects. It allows more of forging a sound!

Advantage: The comprehensive selection of effects! Pure sound.
Inconvenient: The effects are onreux


- The configuration is it simple?
There is nothing easier in the world a JCM 800 single channel!

- Gets it easy to sound good?
Childish, sounds, whatever the slight influence of qualisation are run of the mill and a grain of dot cut the breath! The legend Marshall is at your fingertips

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Oula ... No need for paperwork!


- Is it your style of music?
I'm a fan of the sound of John Frusciante of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, but also to Mathieu Chedid and great classic rock like Gun's n 'Roses, Oasis, Clapton, Knopfler ... this amp and my tailor! It's not for lack of having had a number of other brands before.

- With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
Levels guitars, I use a Fender Start typ 60 ', a Fender Telecaster 50' with Bigsby, an Epiphone LP Jr., and I used to pass an Epiphone SG400 Epiphone LP and trying a more than 97 Std 'from a friend .. Wow, and it made me happy as the happiness of my friends who play live on! Effect level, I remain in the conventional, Boss BD2, OS2, CS3, AC2, Rocktron chorus, tremolo, reverb and a Dunlop CryBaby Danelectro (Weakness).

- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
I use it mainly for a clean sound that saturates the trs slightly with the sound of my fender, just makes me crazy! The real sound and its legendere marshall is in your ears! There's no quibbling, and those who do not like marshall are saying always the same after listening to the sound of this amp! Nothing to do with the other series JCM are not too bad, and really have nothing to do all the other Marshall General (MG series, Valvestate ...)
I want to stress that the sound is almost similar to see what bringing a lot of JMP, Silver Jubilee 2550 and other models of the genre.

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
I take everything! I leave nothing .. The most clenching is to wait until the heater before removing the standby!


- How long have you use it?
More than a year and a half .. Record for me is to pass fender, peavez, H & K. ..

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Its unique grain followed by its simplicity Succes guaranteed sound moyenent ptite a battery of effects!

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Yes .. Finally, many depent ca! But I always RVer to acquire a JCM800 and this beautiful OCCAZ 'showed up I jumped on it!

- How do you report qualitprix?
Well, it enormously depent of who sells it! ... As this amp is available as a OCCAZ 'ca depent therefore the selling price. I pay 400 and in this case, the report price Excellent quality .. However from a 700 it becomes very expensive!

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Without hsiter!
